Default Piston / sleeve pincher

Anyone ever used one of these? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

How do you use them and what exactly do they do? Do they do what they are supposed to do?

Thanks, Uhgg

What they do is "pinch" your sleeve to get your metal pinch/compression back to the engine. Don't waste your money on a clamp type pincher. All it's going to do is pinch your sleeve so that it's slightly ovaled(Not to the naked eye)

If you need that done get with someone reputable. OUr hobby has several. Check out my speed shop thread on this forum. We have on of the leading pinchers on the market from BMR products. The charge is $20 and you can send the entire engine.

good luck!
